Paleo: Good for you or too good to be true?

So first, how do you say it?

Pal-eo?

Pa-leo?

Pa-le-o?

From ThePaleoDiet.com:

The Paleo Dietis based upon eating wholesome, contemporary foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on during the Paleolithic era, the time period from about 2.6 million years ago to the beginning of the agricultural revolution, about 10,000 years ago. These foods include fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-ranging beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and game meat, if you can get it), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthful oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed). Dairy products, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars and processed foods were not part of our ancestral menu.

So what does all of that mean?

Have you tried it?

Is it hard?

I am needing a boost in energy these days that the Luna bar at lunch does not seem to be giving me.  If you have any feedback about this way of eating, I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks.
